Now you can have your own emoji Miguel…
You can tell it’s the holiday season – people put down crazy scores, crazy scores come in.
Mr 2-0 is oversubscribed as people “forget” or drift off into an alcoholic abyss with little chance of predicting succour.
Form goes out the window & “coupon busters” are celebrated by bookies across the country.
So how do you combat this perennial problem?
Don’t ask me, I had Blackburn v Wigan as 4-0 & ‘Wall to beat Barnsley 4-1…
However, as no one netted in the last minute (or any minute!) at Ewood Park, the miracle of Christmas left Danny A & Simon Linds trailing in the wake of Martin Stafford 39 (8)
Ding, dong! (merrily on high)
Sawreetferthee M, eeeyafflaff?!
Art suppin bowt?
Best use that twenty quid eh?!
Here’s the science bit – 14 of youse managed 25 points or more.
It’s Christmas, there are crazy scores expected and there’s last minute shopping to be done.
Why bother doing your scores?
Matthew M, Nick W & John J are wondering just that in a week where 32 bods only managed 15 points or less.
Someone who really didn’t have a Scooby this week was newbie Jon Vaughan 7 (0) – don’t run off scared Jonny, come back brighter!
Correct Score of the Week:
Some crackers here…most popular score was Norwich’s 1-2 defeat to Wolves– 32 of youse got that!
N-n-n-n-nineteen obviously guessed Villa would beat Cardiff 3-1 (yesssss, I had 2-1!)
10 got the dull-all at McDiarmid Park
Eight got the very annoying last minute spoiling Forest Green 2 Swindon Town 2 (yesssss, I had 1-2!)
7 just knew Hibs wouldn’t score against Rangers for a 0-3 (yesssss, I had 1-3!)
Six landed on the two-two in London. The wrong side of London…
Martin S & & David G celebrated the bore draw between Blackburn & Wigan
Ben McK & Danny A believed in Hull. A 3-0 kinda belief… (yep, I had 2-0…)
Patricia F & Tim P both got Aston Villa 1 Southampton 3, which tells you everything about that result…
However, this week’s best correct score goes to, erm, no one again as there-was-no-unique-correct-score-this-week-again…weird, non?!
Bet of the Week:
Gary Blackburne was on “Bet of the Week” position 65th in Week 12 so we asked him to provide a treble selection for the £3 “trixie” bet.
And guess what?!
Palace to win at Toon – bust!
Sheff U to win Brighton – boom!
Leeds to win at Fulham – bust!
So, £0 goes on “Bet of the Week” slot 65th meaning it stayed on £3.00 for the season – yeah!
Great effort from all our BoTWers this season.
Say it quietly, but I think we may be onto something here…
“She’s A Rainbow”: Two crashed the Top Ten and highest climber this week, up a whopping 24 places is Martin Stafford – honourable mentions go to Danny A (+22), Simon Linds (+17), Mike K (+13) and Gareth M (+13)
“You Can’t Always Get What You Want”: Falling furthest this week, down a whopping 15 places is Jon Vaughan – dishonourable mentions go to Tom M (-14), John J (-11), Gary B (-11) and Nick W (-10)
Full season update is imminent once I can work out what day it is…
Actually, I’ll get it done before you go back to work – honest!
